Protomarket.comóOnline sourcing tool for RP parts, castings, and CNC parts
Protomarket.com is a revolutionary new tool for sourcing parts. Buyers can log on to our password-protected, SSL encrypted, secure servers and post Requests for Quotations (RFQs) for parts. With a single RFQ, our system will comb our database of pre-qualified vendors for partners with matching capabilities and ask them to log into the site to provide you with quotes.
Vendors provide quotes in a competitive bidding environment, trying to offer you the best possible prices and delivery times. As we provide access to a huge pool of vendors, many of them will have excess machine capacity at any given time, so the cost savings can be quite substantial.
Concerned about quality? A quality survey is e-mailed to all buyers after the parts are delivered. We aggregate the survey data and post it next to the vendorís name when they quote on RFQs. Vendors who consistently deliver high-quality will receive top marks, others will not. You can use these ratings to help you decide who to partner with. If you have a specific set of vendors you prefer to work with, you can use our account tools to set up preferred vendor lists.
How much does the service cost? Nothing! Itís totally free to the buyer. We charge a nominal commission to the vendor who receives the order, but by reducing the vendorís customer acquisition costs and by allowing them to smooth out their machine utilization, they can cut costs and pass the savings on to you
After a tremendously successful launch at the RP & M Expo in Chicago in April, our roster of buyers and vendors is growing fast. Our marketplace is in the final stages of development, and will go live in just two weeks. Sign up now to participate in the beta launch, or be added to the list of clients when we do the full roll-out at the end of May.
Please stop by booth number 203 at the Atlantic Design & Engineering 2000 show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York from June 6-8 to meet us and talk about how you can use Protomarket.comís virtual marketplace.
